These products are essential for keeping a balanced diet and lowering the risk of major illnesses. A healthy lifestyle and nutrition can help avoid a number of health conditions such as high blood pressure, obesity, cardiovascular disease, digestive problems, and type 2 diabetes. Furthermore, the easy availability of such products as a result of the development of emerging retail facilities and cold chain logistics is also contributing to the demand for the industry. The growing demand for these products is being driven by a large growth in sales of milk food products through online distribution.

The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the demand for the dairy foods market. Worldwide lockdown and stringent regulations caused an increasing number of people to be confined in their houses, allowing consumers to spend more time in their kitchens, resulting in an increase in household consumption of these products.

Furthermore, the pandemic has encouraged consumers to adopt a healthier eating regime. Consumer preferences have evolved toward the consumption of milk-based products, which created lucrative opportunities for manufacturers to enhance their product offerings. Manufacturers converted the surplus milk into highly demanded value-added dairy foods such as butter, paneer, ghee, cheese, and sweets, further enhancing the dairy foods market.

Insight by Product

Based on the product segment, the milk segment is expected to be the most significant revenue contributor. With the population expansion, rising incomes, rapid urbanization, and dietary changes, demand for milk and milk products are increasing in emerging countries.

This trend is highly evident in East and Southeast Asia, especially in densely populated nations such as India, China, Indonesia, and Vietnam. Growing demand for milk and milk products provides an excellent opportunity for producers in high-potential, peri-urban areas to improve their livelihoods through increased production.

Insight by Distribution Channel

Based on the distribution channel, the online segment is expected to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period. The segment growth is attributed to the rising development of online platforms across the globe.
